Watch as a Downy Woodpecker experiences a genuine American Goldfinch invasion on the Cornell Lab FeederWatch Cam! It’s not surprising considering the feeders currently offer some of their favorite options: black oil sunflower, nyjer seed, and hulled sunflower. Goldfinches are among the strictest vegetarians in the bird world, selecting an entirely vegetable diet and only inadvertently swallowing an occasional insect.

This FeederWatch cam is located in the Treman Bird Feeding Garden at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
